Baldur’s Gate 3, a game that many people didn’t even know that well, is now one of the top sellers on Steam. Developed and published by Belgian video game development company Larian Studios, it had been under early access since 2020, and its official full version release went live on August 3, 2023, for the Windows platform. Offering a casual playtime of more than 60 hours, BG3 is a massive game, both in terms of its story and gameplay features. And it’s a banger to play. In a nutshell, BG3 is a good old single-player game with tons of features and fun, available for $60 with no microtransactions at all. As we said earlier, BG3 is a big game, and as such, players will need guides to tackle some of the problems they might be facing in it. That said, we have featured this guide, which shares details on how to increase your maximum party size in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Your party is everything in the game. Throughout your journey, you will get to meet various characters, some of whom you can recruit into your party. All of these characters are unique and specialize in one thing or another. Now, one of the reasons why some players may want to play with an increased party size is because they want to try out different strategies and tactics or simply have fun with a bigger party. And so, read this guide for all the details.
Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3): How to Increase Maximum Party Size
At the time of writing this guide, Baldur’s Gate 3 doesn’t offer any features or a way to increase your maximum party size. For now, the party size is capped at four, and Larian hasn’t expressed any desire to change that. But there is a good reason for it. Going for more than four party members will likely break the game. Every boss fight, enemy encounter, and such is designed to be perfect for a party of four. More than that, the player character and their allies will simply steamroll through the entire story without even breaking a sweat if the party size is increased.
Now, officially, there might not be a way to increase the maximum party size, but as always, we have moderators to take care of that problem. Players can download and install the “Party Limit Begone” mod and say goodbye to the game’s four-party system. This mod will let you increase your party size to as many as 16 members in single-player mode, while multiplayer mode gets 8.
How to install Party Limit Begone Mod in Baldur’s Gate 3?
Unzip the mod after downloading it on your PC. You can use 7zip or Winrar for that.
Now, open the newly unzipped folder, and move the Mods folder in there to the following location – \steamapps\common\Baldurs Gate 3\Data.
After this, head to this directory – \steamapps\common\Baldurs Gate 3\bin, and drag and drop either the bg3.exe or bg3_dx11.exe file to the PartyLimitBegonePatcher.bat file that can be found in the unzipped folder.
Now, open the game and check whether the in-game party can be extended beyond 4.
Players who want to continue with their previous multiplayer save now with more party members can do so by creating a new lobby in the game. After that, you need to choose your party size as per your desire and then start a new run. Now, go back and load your main save, the one you want to continue with. Enjoy your multiplayer run with a larger party size.
Additionally, if you don’t see the party limit increasing, dismiss any one party member, and the game will reset the party size to 16 in single-player mode. If you see a warning from the Larian launcher regarding a data mismatch, pay no heed to it. Just ignore it and enjoy your game. Lastly, some in-game events are hardcoded to have a party size of 4. Due to that, you will encounter some glitches during those particular events. The best way to deal with those is to either dismiss all party members except four. Teleporting in and out also works. But dismissing should be the better choice here instead of having to teleport frequently.
